Firefighters are battling a stubborn fire at a Stoney Creek recycling plant.

Flames broke out at Wasteco, on Lake Avenue North just south of the QEW, around 12:15 a.m. on Thursday.

Crews have brought in a backhoe to break up the garbage and ensure there are no more hotspots.

The fire began inside the building but it’s not known what sparked it.

No one was hurt.

The cost of the damage is not yet known.
